Car thieves in Barbados have seemingly found a niche market and are cashing in on it.

Within the past three years the number of stolen vehicles has increased almost five-fold.

According to police public relations officer Acting Inspector Roland Cobbler, while there were only 22 reported car thefts in 2014, last year that number had ballooned to 106.

That figure was still slightly less than the 111 cars stolen in 2015. In 2012 and 2013 there were 68 and 63 cars, respectively, reported stolen. (RB)
